Self Storage Insurance

As part of your contract with American Self Storage, you’ll carry insurance that covers the property that’s stored inside your unit. This insurance increases your monthly payment. However, in return, you get the peace of mind that you deserve.

A third-party provider services your self-storage policy. So, if you suffer from a covered loss (please carefully read your policy), you can file a claim with your insurer to ask for reimbursement.

The following reasons help explain the importance of insurance coverage for your self-storage unit.

High Value Items

Regardless of whether you store items that have sentimental or monetary significance, your insurance can help you replace it. If you have unusual items that may require special insurance coverage, contact our office about extended coverage options.


If your self-storage unit is affected by severe weather such as flooding, your insurance policy may help you recover from the damage. For this reason, you should always keep your insurance policy handy. If you haven’t already read it, now’s a good time to review your coverage.
